Rajeev Masand’s latest blind item is about leeches of Bollywood.
There are many rich kids who aspire for Bollywood stardom. Despite spending several crores only a few rich kids make it big. Only one among them has made it big & how. The rest of them make their dadies spend crores on each film,only to see it flop later. Their daddies have to cajole actresses to act opposite their loser sons.
But the leeches of Bollywood, don’t shy from asking for favors from these rich kids. Some even date them for their money. Hell, some even get married to them for money! Rumor has it that a sexy siren who has a shady past was caught in a compromising position with a rich kid by her husband. This rich kid’s dad is a guthka baron. He too is married to another washed out actress.
This wanna-shine actor and son of a moneybags film producer may not have much to show in terms of lasting performances or successful movies, but he’s got nearly every young Bollywood star on speed dial and tends to constantly be in the company of the movers and shakers of tinseltown. Insiders say he cultivates these friends in high places through thoughtful gifting, and unlimited free access to his private gym, a custom- built, state-of-the-art facility in his own residence building.
Top stars have been known to use his gym for the simple reason that it’s got better equipment than some of the best commercial gyms in the city, but mostly because it’s private and exclusive and allows them the luxury to work out peacefully away from ‘common folk’ and their pesky phone cameras. More than one superstar is known to regularly work out at his gym, and a bevy of starlets can almost always be spotted on its treadmills, working up a sweat, thrilled that they don’t have to fork out a fat membership fee for access.
But recently, the young fella’s mother is believed to have visited the gym and noticed that it was filled with B-listers enjoying her son’s hospitality. She has since warned him to restrict access only to A-listers. She was particularly infuriated on spotting a dusky actress with an hourglass figure at the gym, and went on to remind her son that the lady in question had pointedly refused to act in a movie opposite him a few years ago, despite his father’s best attempts to woo her with a big pay cheque.
